    Hello ~okeanos-global users,

    We are happy to announce that on Wednesday, September 21 2016 between 09:00 and 11:00 EET we will be doing a major upgrade to the ~okeanos-global service, with a new version of the Synnefo software.

    During the upgrade Astakos, Cyclades and Pithos+ Web UIs and their APIs will be unavailable. Your VMs and Pithos+ files should remain unaffected.

    After the upgrade, you will be able to enjoy more robust services with several improvements and additions across ~okeanos-global, as well as some pithos+ performance enhancements.

    the ~okeanos-global team

    Hello ~okeanos-global users,

    Many of you have already noticed that the beta version of ~okeanos-global manages your IPs in a new way. Our previous blog post explains what are the new features. We will provide some excerpts of this blog post below:

    Public IPs

    Next to your 'machines' and 'networks' two new tabs just appeared. The first one reads 'public IPs'. Until now, every machine that you created got connected to the public network (Internet) and was automatically assigned a public IPv4 by the ~okeanos-global infrastructure. Although this was sufficient for most of you, our advanced users asked ... read more

    1. Active CPUs and RAM

    Starting today, we introduce a new, more sophisticated tracking mechanism for your CPUs and RAM that will allow you to create even more machines. How does it work?

    We now track only your active CPUs and RAM. This results in CPU and RAM usage only when your machine is running. If you shutdown ... read more
